January 27th National Punch the Clock Day
The time clock was invented by Willard Bundy in 1888 in Auburn, New York as a way to better keep track of his employees work schedule. At the time (Pun intended) it seemed like a great idea. Employees punch into the clock when they arrived, punched out for lunch and such and then back in when going back to work. Finally they would punch out when they left for the day. In theory this worked out great, until it was figured out that those employees had to remember all the steps to make it work. Since then, you don’t see a punch clock being used much anymore, which is probably a good thing.
